C+C: Vauxhall Astra MK2

Following last week’s introduction with a budget Bluebird, today’s choice focuses on another popular-turned-endangered species. Just two of these Astras with the 1.6-litre engine and automatic gearbox exist, according to Howmanyleft, making this three door Merit worthy of some…merit.

Despite some minor scratches and some crudely repaired rust work on the rear offside arch, this Astra certainly looks to be in great condition for a 23 year old daily driver. Having been garaged for most of its lifetime, this Kadett doppelgänger has remained with the same family since 1995, accounting for two of its three owners. With fairly new tyres, break shoes and pads, this blue Astra is ready to serve as a cheap retro commuter, for less than the price of a season ticket!
